The Festive Special

I’ve sat down to write this piece about half a dozen times over the past few weeks—hoping to have published it long before now—and...

Cancer and the Holidays

Remembering My Mother, Tanya.

I want to preface this piece by saying that it was incredibly painful to write. It took me about three hours and a dozen Kleenex as I revisited the experience of my mom living with colon cancer. I miss her terribly and, with my father's permission, have published this in her memory with the hope that it helps others navigating their own losses understand that they are not alone.
